Accidents don't happen to you...

angry man on tieQuestion – do accidents happen to you or for you?

At times, it can feel like we have no control over what happens to us. Most of the time, we don’t have control. We can’t control what others do to us or what curve balls life throws our way.

But the one thing we can control is how we react, and how much we let the accident, incident or event impact us.

Instead of falling into the trap of the poor me mentality, is there not more value in looking at these events we perceive to be challenging, as amazing opportunities that have happened for a reason?

When you look at accidents and events as happening for you, you’re allowing yourself to look for the learning, the opportunity to grow. The negative charge on the incident is immediately discharged, and placed in an arena you have more control, potentially moving you towards becoming a better person – a healthier, stronger and more resilient individual.

It’s as the old adage says, “Pain is inevitable, but suffering is a choice.”

So will you continue to play the victim, or choose to learn from what has happened?

The choice is up to you.
